Google Canada Announces New Features for its Pixel Smartphones

Google Canada has today announced some new features coming soon to Pixel smartphones, including the ability to easily access and share audio recordings at, a new way to use the Pixel Camera app underwater, and new wallpapers.


The update lets users share links to their Recorder audio files, so anyone can listen, even if they don’t have a Pixel. At, users can hear recordings, see transcripts and even search through files. Users can also back up recordings to their Google Account.

Google says divers will now be able to use their Pixel camera with the Kraken Sports’ Universal Smart Phone Housing to capture marine life and landscapes. They can use all camera features, including Night Sight, Portrait Mode, Motion Photos, and video directly through Pixel’s Camera app.

Part of Pixel’s latest drop also includes new wallpapers that celebrate different cultural moments throughout the year with artwork from artists around the world. And for International Women’s Day on March 8, Pixel will add new wallpapers illustrated by Spanish duo Cachetejack, which focus on the strength and transformation of women.

Your Pixel will receive these feature drops during the applicable Android update and support periods for the phone.
